Pac-12 issues public reprimand to Arizona coach Adia Barnes for comments about officiating

Published on February 28, 2019


Statement from the Pac-12:

University of Arizona head women’s basketball coach Adia Barnes has been reprimanded by the Pac-12 Conference for public comments made about women’s basketball officiating, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today.

Barnes was reprimanded for comments made in a postgame radio interview that called into question the officiating during Arizona’s game versus California on Sunday.

“The Pac-12 membership has established rules that prohibit our coaches from making derogatory public comments about officiating,” stated Scott. “We have an obligation to our members to enforce approved Conference rules. As a part of our officiating program, there is a protocol in place for our coaches to provide feedback directly to the coordinator of officials.”
